If you want to be Muslim, any time is good time.
And without a doubt, Islam's first three generations were the best of the best.
But looking around, it seems times were never better for anyone to be Muslim.
Islam today is more fun than ever before. And Islam today is as challenging as it ever was.
And that is Islam!
Qulla Yawumin Huwa Fi Sha'an!
And Islam today is exactly what Islam was 14 centuries ago. Same focus; same teachings; same requirements; same commitment to God above and to God's creation below.
Only the tools have changed. Today you ride a car instead of a camel. And you talk to people on the Internet more than you perhaps talk to them face to face.
But what is most miraculous about Islam is -- if you ask me, everything about Islam is a miracle -- the Qur'an.
What could be a greater miracle than the fact that what the world has in its hands today -- I did not say "What Muslims have in their hands today" -- is exactly the same Qur'an that came out of the blessed mouth of Prophet Muhammad, Sallallahu Alaihi wa Sallam, and that he claimed was given to him by angel coming directly from God.
From God or not, you can fight all you want. Through an angel or not you can argue to your heart's content. That is the kind of freedom that Islam gives you. That God himself gives you.
That Islam came into this world to bestow upon you.
Upon all the world, that is. Upon every single member of the human race, regardless of gender, class, status, "religion," ethnicity or nationality.
But the fact that it is absolutely, positively the same Qur'an, you can neither doubt nor question in any serious way.
Now, if that is not a miracle, what is?
